The transcendental path is not masculine or feminine.
This bloody war between Clinton and Obama-- who has more (or less) "substance", who has better experience, whose minority is more beleagured, who is more ready for the 3AM phone call (who ever is?)-- all this has got to STOP.
I believe the Clinton camp has been responsible for most of the dirty fighting--for suggesting McCain would be a preferable candidate to Obama, for suggesting (via Ferraro) Obama is a candidate only because he is black, for coyly intimating Hillary wouldn't mind Obama as VP, i.e., undercutting his presidential appeal...on and on. But my Clinton-supporter friends have insisted that Obama has been just as divisive. I don't think so, but for sake of argument, let's agree they have both lost sight of what really matters in this election, and that is getting a Democrat in office.
I can't believe how fiercely my Democrat friends have been fighting all week over the Ferraro comments and now the (dug up by FOX) Rev. Wright tapes. (Another story. It's political suicide to admit that blacks have anger against powerful white men, to admit we've fucked up America's relationships abroad and been too cocky to admit when we've done wrong. The Rev. is being excoriated and Obama will 'have to' disavow him. grrr.)
But my point is simply this: as Stephen Colbert called it, we are in the midst of Democrageddon! In other words, the party is imploding.
We have got to get it together, NOW.
